Wind and weather erode the stone. Only the gentleness of the constant water is able to shape the rock. The unyielding gentleness manages to put its stamp on this hard substance, but this takes many millennia, perhaps even millions of years.
Wood, on the other hand, is a fragile material; it can be cut and split, it can burn or break. Even the hardest piece of oak can rot and weather in a few decades. It demands caution in its treatment and use. It must be cared for. Wood, unlike stone, is not a material of eternal duration. Here, however, Daniel Bucur has created a massive, indestructible block through its exterior design. A chunk of rock that was thrown up from a volcano, solidified and preserved for eternity. As a whole, it remains. Indestructible for centuries to come.
